JUST SAY LOVE
We all have the same problem: loneliness. We are not really alone, of course, but most of the time we forget that. Every now and then, though, something or someone comes along and reminds us. That’s attraction. The problem occurs when that attraction is misunderstood. It takes on a power it doesn’t deserve and we spend our lives trying to kill the symptoms of loneliness, not the desease. Plato has a lot to say on this. Not the least of which is that most of the world’s problem could be solved if we could just remember we are more than body. We are soul. Remember that our desires are just a longing to feel the connection we already have, but have forgotten. I think what he and other great philosophers are trying to say is that our real purpose in life is to remind each other, by example, of who we really are.
